Samsung may not have a flat-screen Galaxy S8 model next year

 The Samsung Galaxy S7 might be the last model to sport a flat screen.

The Galaxy S8 may not sport a flat-screen variant when it launches next year.

According to The Korea Herald, industry sources claim that Samsung is planning to ditch the flat screen model of the Galaxy S8 next year as sales of the Galaxy S7 edge continue to surpass that of the Galaxy S7. In addition, Samsung has already started sourcing curved display sizes of 5.1 and 5.5-inches.

Koh Dong-jin, the head of Samsung's mobile business, reportedly revealed during an interview in New York last month that the edge displays would be the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone lineup.
